Mountain Biking Waipunga Block

*   Add a review
#312 of 381 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#11319 in the world

There is a myriad of purpose-built singletrack in this forest block, most of it requiring an advanced skill level. You need to be fit because they are the old fashioned style of trail that surrender altitude rather too easily resulting is a lot of climbing back up! But you'll be smiling all the way...

    These trails are starting to look tired and neglected. They're old style trails - good for a workout in the peace of the pine forest but the locals obviously prefer the newer trails in the Mill Block.
